Jenkintown is a small town located just outside of Philadelphia. This is a pretty town with a lot of potential. The schools are terrific, and there’s a great town square for events. A small pocket park is in process of being created as well. For a small town it isn’t a very cohesive bunch, but I still call it home.

Jenkintown is the best of both worlds, suburban living with close access to city night life. Within a 5 mile radius you have access to Whole Folders, Trader Joe's, Walmart, Target to name a few. Quite and clean streets, excellent pubs and restaurants. When your board with that can drive or take the train 30 mints into Center City Philadelphia
Quaint is definitely the word! Pretty easy access to organic groceries and mom and pop restaurants. Love living in this quiet town!
